A Bone is a miscellaneous item in 7 Days to Die. It can be looted from Animals and Gore blocks, both human and animal. By itself, a Bone cannot be used as a melee weapon. It can also be crafted into a Bone Knife or used as a cooking ingredient to make Glue. As of A13 the Bone Knife is a really good early game animal harvesting tool to get the most from your kills. Make sure to carry one when hunting.

Every resource you can harvest from an animal benefits from the "Huntsman" perk as of A17


You can craft a Bone Knife when you have acquired 5 Bones by then selecting the Bone items and then recipe, then hitting craft on Bone Knife.


The following recipes require Bone: (NOTE: Times are based on a level one skill and the material that an object is crafted from, which is only reliable for food at the moment, so is rather difficult to calculate, this table is auto-generated):
